Age: 50.

Known Aliases: The Enforcer; The Minesweeper; The Consigliere; The Keeper of the Secrets; The First Friend.

He's Clinton's best buddy, right? No, no, no. He's the President's attorney. As in attorney-client privilege.

But they've known each other for 30 years: Pure coincidence. Check his job title -- Deputy White House Counsel. Playing hearts with the Prez and keeping the lid on "bimbo eruptions" is just a sideline.

Ken Starr doesn't see it that way: Well, those two have never seen eye to eye. Starr named Lindsey an unindicted co-conspirator in the Whitewater case back in '96. Since then, Bruce hasn't really been on speaking terms with grand juries.

He's not reticent when it comes to talking points, though: Hush! That's just a rumor. Through intermediaries, Lindsey told TIME he never gave Monica that infamous three-page memo. And so far, Starr hasn't been able to prove otherwise.

Known transgressions: Once given an overdue notice for a book on the hidden lives of presidents from the White House library; owes $250,000 to a prominent Washington law firm.

Most Likely to Say: Nothing.

Least Likely to Say: "I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. Starr."
